words from the "driving" desk

Vehicle upgraded, I’m assuming that we’re going to use it for a few more adventures. I don’t think I’ll write too much about driving, but having moved to a vehicle intended for adventure, something tells me I’ll have something to say.

With a new pickup truck and a (nearly) eight year old daughter, it's probably (regrettably and embarrassingly) something from the Taylor Swift catalog.

Not a Barbie Truck

I’ve had the Taco for less than two weeks, but I’m really starting to get a taste for the manual transmission. I put a manual gearbox on my “must have” list when we went out shopping. The Mazda had a manual transmission too, and upgrading to the truck it’s been a solid couple weeks of adjustment. Longer throws and more deliberate shifting is required, coupled with completely different gearing ratios, and of course the truck has the 6-speed versus the 5-speed I was driving in the car. Obviously it’s a very different feel and for the first couple days I was a little worried I’d made a mistake, but now that I’ve got in good span of a few hundred klicks of driving in the city (and a bit on the highway) I think I’m almost starting to prefer the truck and very glad I went that way.

No, I didn't plan this question for the day after I bought a new truck... but given that we just bought a shiny new truck, I'm going to assume I don't need to answer this question!

I don’t need to see a truck advertisement every time I open my browser for the rest of the summer.
